Sunday Selection: Beyonce - "Poison"
Whats up everybody? Hope all is well. I came across some interesting new music this week. I got my hands on two new Chris Brown tracks, even heard some new Bobby Valentino and Tank, but the track from Beyonce titled Poison I received was the most noteworthy this week.
Poison found its way onto DJ Hazes Big R&B Ego Mixtape and its looks like a lot of people are wondering where this song came from. From what I understand the song didnt make the cut for I Am Sasha Fierce, but after listening Im wondering why not.
The overall theme of the song puts me in the mind of a hit from R&B group Bell Biv Devoe circa 1990 that was also titled Poison, but doesnt fair the potential to be a number one song like it did close to 20 years ago. Even though the song doesnt seem like it would be a chart topper it does seem album worthy. Its something most can relate to if youve ever been in a relationship. Beyonce sings about a failed relationship thats no good, but yet is so hard to walk away from and ends up being just like Poison.
Im curious to know what you think about this song. Let me know.
Well yall thanks for taking time out to read what I had to say.
Until next week check out this weeks Sunday Selection Poison.
